Frozen Shoulder (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
As described above, the treatment of a frozen shoulder usually requires an aggressive combination of antiinflammatory medications, cortisone injection(s) into the shoulder, and physical therapy. Antiinflammatory medications include ibuprofen, naproxen (Naprosyn), diclofenac (Voltaren), and many others.
Regular, guided exercise, often with a physical therapist, is essential.
Once initial treatments have been initiated, the proper ongoing treatment is guided by the monitoring of the health-care professionals.
